Myofascial Structural bodywork session

Willoughby has a quiet strength and from the moment you arrive to the end of the session he takes you to another level of existence with his knowledge of what the body, mind and spirit is all about. He has a calm that is genuine and it transfers through his massage. His techniques are soothing, healing and transformative.

Myofascial Structural bodywork session

This was my first myofascial massage so I have nothing to compare it to, but I was amazed that my posture noticeably changed after only one session! I'm looking forward to more sessions and the changes they will bring.

Myofascial Structural bodywork session

Willoughby is an incredibly skilled practitioner, but I especially appreciate his ability to adjust our long term treatment plan to address unexpected changes in my body or new things that are showing up that day. I've had more rapid physical changes than with any other modality, and chronic pain is almost gone. I'm very impressed!

In a short amount of time Williougby has helped me bring awareness to my alignment so that I can have intention with how I carry myself throughout the day. Willoughby was patient and mindful when working with me. I loved the bright, clean space and soothingly vibrant music as well. I look forward to future appointments!
